In this paper, simulation and experimental studies are performed to analyze the design of a light electric vehicle (LEV) that is equipped with fuel cell. For future clean and green electric vehicles, the incorporation of fuel cell technologies is regarded as a promising design alternative. The fuel cell combines hydrogen and oxygen in the air to generate electricity and H2O. It, however, has two drawbacks, one is that the power output of fuel cell may be subject to instability and the other is that the power of instantaneous discharge of fuel cell is not sufficiently high. Moreover, the cost of hydrogen is still high nowadays. In this work, a hybrid structure of power system in which the electric power system is augmented with fuel cell is adopted. The fuel cell is considered as the dominative power and the lithium-Iron battery is used as the auxiliary power. The purpose is to design a power management system to coordinate the generation of power from the two different sources in anticipating various needs.
